A few episodes back, Scott issued the Product Discovery 24 Hour Challenge. Did you take him up on the challenge? If you haven’t, it’s not too late! Take a look at the links in the resources section below to learn all about it. On this episode of The Amazing Seller, Scott shares some update from TAS followers like you who took the challenge and ……
I don’t know about the new course. I have gone through some of the Proven Amazon Course which was created by Jim Cockrum. Jim lives in my city, has a great reputation for giving back to the community and for being an honest online marketer. He does very well selling stuff on Amazon. The idea for this business is to source products that you can buy for 1/3 the price that you know will sell on Amazon. There is software you can get to help you make good buying decisions. And, it’s a real business, so it takes work. Jim’s sales page is not that fancy but the course looked good to me. It includes video training and webinar training all for only $247.
CleanTAS 224 : 3 Red Flags for Bad Product Selection and How to Avoid Them! The number of questions Scott gets week after week about whether or not a product idea is a good one are so numerous that it’s prompted him to record this episode. There are certain things that make for a great private label product opportunity and ot 7/4/2016 Free View in iTunes
Thirdly, would you rather have a number of false starts following the advice of self-appointed wannabe gurus who have never done it themselves but are rehashing other people’s half-truths (alternatively, you could also choose to waste a lot of time on Google with no clear idea of what is wheat and what is chaff), or would you rather learn the most effective and efficient way of doing it from people who have been there and done it?
Your review of ASM is spot on. The training and support are average at best, I did not feel that my success really matters to Amazing Selling Machine. I have spent 6 months working at this and have lost $5,000 on this mediocre training and another $10,000 on product, shipping, etc.
Negative reviews are at the top of some of the worst things that can happen to an Amazon seller. So what recourse do you have? Should you respond to the negative reviews? Abandon the listing and start a new one? On this episode of The Amazing Seller, Scott walks through several ways sellers like you can deal with negative reviews left on your product listing. One thought that Scott shares is to consider offering a new and improved product that resolves the reviewer’s issues free of charge as a response to the review that they left.

ASM 374 – Power Units Laboratory – 1.00 credit: Laboratory to complement concepts introduced in ASM 373. Topics include engine systems, operation, adjustment, maintenance, repair, measurement, and testing. 1 three-hour laboratory. Prereq: MATH 103 or 104.
I have a question. I am new to private labeling on Amazon. I basically used ASMs model (without paying for the course) and combined other Amazon knowledge I’ve gathered over the years. I have done pretty well for starting out – 4k per month.
Amazing FBA, led by Michael Veazey, is a Podcast, community and set of resources for any UK Amazon Seller (though we welcome all visitors, including our many American, Australian, Canadian and German visitors).
I did write a long message (I deleted it), but I do not have the time or strength to get in a pissing match with you now. I am sure the community respects your view point on things and good luck to them.
I launched 3 products the first year. Two were complete duds and one did ok, earning me about $2000-$3000 a month on average. I launched 3 more products about 3 months ago and those have taken me to where I am quite pleased. I am going to net about $8000 this month after expenses.
@neckrub – I have a YouTube presentation walking through the 8 steps on getting started with selling a private label on Amazon. I’m also doing a hangout tomorrow, which I will answer any questions about selling on Amazon and my alternative training. Click on the Facebook icon under my name and you can sign up for the hangout there.
I listen to a BUNCH of podcasts. To be honest, at least three to four hours a day. There are some truly amazing podcasts to listen to, but this one is the first one I have ever reviewed. Scott is a totally normal dude who tells you exactly how to make money on Amazon and continues to stay relevant. He not only gives great advice, he brings some of the top sellers and troubleshooters in the business, Scott does this for free. Yes, he will sell you the product, but if you listen to the podcast there is very little he doesn’t give away for absolutely free! I’ll probably pay for one of his live courses in 2017, mainly so I can meet the dude who has talked with me more than anyone else in the past month (my wife is jealous). Yes, Scott does have a product to sell, but if you want it for free just, listen to his podcast and get a priceless education. Thanks Scottt! You are truly The Amazing Seller!!!Micah (Albuquerque, NM)
What drives the point home about how (IMO unreasonably) high a price point ASM is, is the fact that if you get others to sign under your affiliate, you get to pocket $2K. So sure, you can make up that initial $4K outlay if you get others to sign up, but for me, I’d have to be *really* on board with ASM in order to, in good conscience, personally pitch it like it is advertised.
For sure private label is the way to go. If you are selling a ‘brand’ product that anyone can buy. You will always find someone comes in and cuts your margin. There is always some willing to work on crazy margins.
You don’t try to compete with a large brand, you try to compete with a smaller/medium size brand that has no marketing skills. There are not many manufacturers selling on Amazon, therefore there aren’t many people that have a vested interest in getting as many product reviews as possible. Just by doing that one thing, you’ll give the allusion (over time) that your brand is as powerful as their brand.
First, sign up for Amazing Selling Machine using my affiliate link. I make a few bucks when you sign up through me, but it’s far less than my private coaching rate of $4,000 per month for one phone call per week. You’ll be getting access to me – as well as the rest of The Tribe – for free when you use my link.
CleanTAS 382: Ask Scott Session #118 – Open Brand to One Brand Steps – Failed Launch Tips – Product Success…Now What? It’s time to get fired up for another exciting session of Ask Scott on The Amazing Seller!

Keep in mind many established products have spend years developing their brand, competing will be very difficult, to establish a sellable price, expect to discount your price considerably if the product has a real following.
An entire module is dedicated to the product selection process (this is the most tedious step of the process, be patient while you’re searching, but do not overthink it. You http://sports.dailydispatcher.com/news/amazing-selling-machine-course-evergreen-launch-2018-start-an-ecommerce-business/0045744/ not be perfect from your first product. Just pick one & go on.)
If you are anything like me you probably feel the same way, desperate to get freedom from your job and keen to follow in the success of all these internet millionaires you keep hearing about. However, without a step-by-step system to follow it is confusing to know where to start and what to do.
If you ask me, is the course worth $4k (I think it costs more now, $5k or $6k? OMG!), I will say NO, even tho I myself bought it. From the beginning when I am in the course, I had the thought of refunding just before the 30 days guarantee period. Because the course is not worth the money, you can easily use that sum of money to fund your inventory and your product launch. How to launch a product to get it ranked? Simple, I think its not a secret nowadays, just do a google search and you will find the answer: manipulate the amazon algorithm with tons of simulated sales within a short period of time.
The answer is China. ASM teaches its sellers to contact product manufacturers in China, obtain and test product samples and, if satisfied, order bulk quantities of those products. Such bulk orders can cost several or even tens of thousands of dollars, so it pays to know a niche product market well.
I try to regularly remind people that I am an affiliate for the course so they can take that into consideration when making a decision, but at this point I’m basically maxed out my personal bonus offer, so I have no more incentive to get people to buy ASM through me as an affiliate.
“Bought PPL yesterday and we are super excited about it. Just to let everyone know how much faith we have in Jim Cockrum & Tom Freeman, just yesterday we canceled our Amazing Selling Machine program while we we still in the 30 refund period. I can assure you, we would not have done this if we were not 110% confident in Jim & Tom. We are looking forward to getting to know you all and when we need advise or a hand with something as we progress through this, being able to have a real support team to help us with things, when we need it…But what I can tell you right away and is one of the main reasons we did make the change was, having training from Jim & Tom on creating multiple channels to sell your same private label product via, Amazon, EBay, your own ECommerce site. As well as the other ways that Tom mentioned in the intro video. Amazing Selling Machines is primarily focused solely on selling your product on Amazon. As Tom illustrates in the chart in his intro video, by using multiple marketing channels to sell your products it will seriously explode your sales volume VS just focusing on one channel, hope that helps.”
Forbes rated this marketer as one of the top digital marketers to watch. He’s built a name for himself, all over the World – for being a Free Traffic Genius. Having helped thousands of students already create successful businesses with nothing but Free Traffic, he’s now come to help #LurnNation!
Both Jason and Matt come from the info product world and have successfully transitioned into doing well on Amazon. So for info marketers who have had some success…these are the right people to learn from.
You can make thin margins and decent volume by cherry-picking the best amazon products to sell; if you do that, you’ll make decent money quickly. White-labeling a product is a long-term approach and it’s one that might not start to pay dividends until you’ve built up your product, but it pays off massively down the line. Once you get some volume, you can start tweaking the product design.
I’d agree with Jim that it’s good to pursue multiple income streams. If you’d like to learn about different Amazon or eBay business models, PAC is a great resource. However, if your goal is to specifically learn about private labeling, there are better alternatives.
How would you like to get what would be equal to about $782/yr in fees for free? And more importantly, set it up before you get customers so that way you never lose all the money you can make with an Amazon customer after they make their first purchase!
I looked at PAC but I am not impressed because they are all theories, all talking on videos, no step by step process, sorry to say, way overpriced for $347 or $99. But I am impressed on the information of free PDF of Amazon Selling Machine because it’s like you do it step by step. I can do things “step by step” and get bored quickly with just watching videos full of talks.
